  2. 1. I'm really enjoying my time there, I can't wait to spend a full season there before moving on to hopefully the VHL. 2. I'm hoping to be the leading point getter on any team I join; but I'll do whatever the team needs. 3. David Pastrnak is one of my favourite players to watch; I try to play like he does. 4. I don't have a preference at all, I'll go to whoever needs me the most 5. I have no real idea. It's a talented draft so I could honestly slip out of the top 10. 1 question from the Player Press Conference for my weekly 6 answered:
  3. Weirdest thing in your hockey bag? Probably my Nintendo Switch. It keeps me interested on those long road trips.
  4. On Bjorns goals this off-season: "Looking forward to going back to Iceland for a few weeks to catch up with friends and family. After a rough season where Philadelphia struggled in the VHLM, going back to my home and relieving some of that stress is just what the Doctor ordered. I'll be training with a view veteran VHL trainers to hone my craft: mainly looking at improving my defense and passing ability. Of course, my translator will be accompanying me yet again, as I look to continue to improve my ability to speak English." Bjorn had a tremendous end to the season, and while it may have been a coincidence, a new pre-game routine might have found a place in Bjorn's pre-game plans moving forward. "Yes, it's true, but I don't know how the media caught wind of that. The day of the game I go to a massage salon with my old teammate and now Magnus, and we get a massage and sauna. We just talk about the game, go over my matchups and try and visualise success. The massage helps loose me up and the sauna helps me feel totally refreshed." We should hear more of Bjorn's name being mentioned in the media as the VHLM draft rapidly approaches. Little is known on his stock or even where he may end up, but Bjorn is excited about the future. "I'm very excited, I feel like towards the end of last season I played some of the best hockey of my life. I'm looking forward to doing more of that and improving to an even better level of play. I feel like I can be one of the best young players in the VHL, and I'm eager to prove that."
  5. Scoringsonn celebrates his first goal for Philadelphia. Bjorn Scoringsonn has had a mixed bag of performance as his debut season with the Philadelphia Reapers has come to an end, with the squad not able to produce to their potential and make the post-season. Not much was expected from Bjorn, a player who for most of his life has flown unnoticed under the radar. He lets his play on the ice do the talking, and as the season progressed and Bjorn got more comfortable with the team, he was able to contribute more consistently. Many scouts and pundits noticed Bjorn improve his skating, goal scoring and passing as the season progressed. He came in quite raw, despite being a top ranked junior in Iceland, he found himself playing in a league full of top ranked players from their own countries. It took him long to fall back to Earth and realise he wasn’t the best player on the ice anymore – far from it. He had to learn how to play in a team construct, to pass and defend, to do the little things on both sides of the puck that would help his team gain advantages. He would go on to explain his shortcomings with the aid of a translator: “I came in not knowing English very well, which made transitioning to the VHLM that much more difficult. Having to adjust to an entirely different environment in America and being away from my family at such a young age has definitely taken its toll. But I’m happy with the progress I’ve made so far. Hopefully I can enter the VHLM draft with some momentum behind me and look towards buckling down for the VHL.” Bjorn working hard both on and off the court: seen here practicing his English in an interview. Bjorn’s words about slowly integrating and transitioning himself into the Philadelphia style of hockey ring true when you look at his last few games: solid results, while Philly didn’t win. Most glaringly, Bjorn’s individual play improved, including a two-point performance against the Saskatoon Wild in his final game of the season. His two assists speak volumes of his development: Bjorn came into the league as a known goal scorer, while his passing and defending left a lot to be desired. “I came from a junior system in Iceland that didn’t have the strongest of players. I don’t want to sound cocky, but I was far and away the best player of my age group, and I did things by myself a lot of the time. I could get used to this passing thing [chuckles].” Bjorn’s eyes now look to the VHLM draft, where his stock has been steadily climbing over the past few weeks. His late entrance into the VHLM took many by surprise as not many teams took notice of him at all, which made his decision to join Philadelphia all the easier. “I hope to be drafted by Philadelphia again: they took a chance on a kid from Iceland and I want to repay that by displaying my loyalty. With that in mind, though, I know it’s a business now and I’ll play my heart out for any team that drafts me.” Scoringsonn’s stock, while on the rise, is still a mystery to many. While he could theoretically make is way into the Top 5, the Top 10 seems like a more realistic target for the young man from Iceland. He looks to a full off-season training with whichever team he ends up with, hopefully doing enough to lead them to a VHLM championship.
  6. Bjorn Scoringsonn (S67 RW) is available for deals! @Brand Executive
  7. Could I have the same done? Had a player in the past but didn't apply any TPE -- I also had an extra 1 from carry-over for Scoringsonn. Also welcome @chillzone !
